Since 1916, girls have successfully answered the call to Go Gold, an act that indelibly marks them as accomplished members of their communities and the world. Are you ready to make a difference in the world? Check out what these young ladies are doing to make a difference. Visit GSUSA’s website for additional resources.

Go Gold Award App

This interactive resource walks aspiring Gold Award applicants through the entire process of planning, developing, and implementing their own Gold Award projects. The app exactly mirrors the existing paper process and is available online. The app automatically informs councils of the project’s status and submits the Gold Award Proposal and Final Report and a request for approval directly to GSNCA. Check it out at  Just as with the paper process girls should complete the pre-requisites before beginning their proposal using the app.  Any girl that has completed GSNCA Gold Award training is eligible to use the app, even if it was not covered at training. If you would like to elect not to use the Go Gold Online version, please email for a PDF version of this form.

GSUSA has compiled a list of universities/colleges, foundations, and Girl Scout councils that offer scholarships, awards, and grants to Girl Scouts.  For more information visit the GSUSA scholarship page.
